    Nokia Lumia 930

    I put my name down this weekend to be notified when the Nokia Lumia 930 becomes available at my local store for upgrade. Strange that there isn't already a thread here by my reckoning. I'm moving across from Android-land, and am looking forward to the challenge. This is definitely (IMO) the...

Put bluntly, does iBurst have local peering with MWEB (assuming we're not already using MWEB in some way as a provider)? If not, what is being done? EDIT: I see IS and MWEB have...
